Lionel Messi: Staying at Barcelona, according to his father

Messi's future at Camp Nou has been the subject of conjecture in the last few days following Messi's spat with economic vice-president Javier Faus.

Messi hit back at Faus after the Barcelona director claimed that the mercurial playmaker did not deserve a wage rise.

The row fuelled rumours that Messi could leave Barcelona in the summer with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain all linked with a move for the Argentine superstar.

However Messi's father, Jorge Messi, insists the row is finished and that his son has no plans to leave Barcelona.

"Barcelona fans must know that Lionel's future is linked to this club," Messi Snr told Diario Ole.

"This chapter must be closed now, don't seek anything more than a direct reply from 'Leo' to the public declarations made by Mr. Faus.

"What has been said has been said and that's it. When Lionel says something, it becomes news.

"We don't want any conflict with the club, nor with the president and certainly not with the fans."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
